Sorting and searching: A Newbie's perspective

Yesterday I posted for the first time on my blog here at Dreamstime. Nothing like having another blog (I have several blogs already). No complaints! I think writing up my experience as a new poster here at Dreamstime might be of help to other new members as well.

Since May of 2006 I've traveled the entire US with an Airstream Trailer. Coast to coast twice! That's a lot of miles. And more importantly that's a lot of photos.

Since I've decided to seriously give Dreamstime a "whirl" I decided to sort through the thousands and thousands of photos from the past year. Separating the wheat from the chaff. Talk about a daunting task!

As I've worked on my photography I know what should do well here, and I'm working on those types of shots now. But I know that buried in my portable hard drive are great shots from Colorado, Texas, New Mexico, Nevada, California, Montana, and more....Whew, I've been everywhere man, I've been everywhere!

After spending most of yesterday sorting it leads me to ask one question. Does anyone else go through their old "non-serious" shots looking for that gold nugget here and there? Or do they go forward with new photos and styles, leaving the old behind?
